Are these binoculars rubber covered and thus would they then be a good long term buy for a lad of 10 years of age?

Yes, the Helios Fieldmaster range are all rubber covered.

The rubber is not the chunky type often seen on marine binoculars, these have smooth rubber. They feel very nice in the hand. They are not too big or heavy so I would think that they would be ideal for a 10 year old (and for his next 10 years!)

are these binoculars suitable for a lady?

The Helios Fieldmaster 8x40 are fairly small and lightweight and would be ideal for anyone with smaller hands.

At shows when people can have a good look and feel of the binoculars, we have sold many pairs of these binoculars to ladies.

Hi there,
I am planning to go to Africa next year and was wondering if these binoculars would be suitable for looking out across the savannah and observing the wild animals? I am looking for a good focus over a long distance.

The Helios Fieldmaster 8x40 would be an ideal choice for wildlife observation in Africa, they are quite light to carry and have a good image.

The only other ones around this price range I would consider would be the Visionary Wetland as they are waterproof and have internal focusing (the eyepieces do not move in and out like the Helios) this should keep the dust/sand out of them better.
